Golden Resurrection vocalist Christian Liljegren‘s rock-star dream began in his room as a child while living in Habo, a small village in the south of Sweden.
“Yngwie Malmsteen, Europe and others were the musical heroes in my teens,” he said. “They are still big influences in my music. Their breakthrough in Japan was huge and I dreamed about my own success in Japan.”
In 1997, Christian‘s dream came true when his band Narnia signed a deal with Pony Canyon in Japan — the same label as Yngwie Malmsteen.
Since then, over 15 releases in the Japanese market have sprung from Christian‘s own record label from such bands as Golden Resurrection, Divine Fire, Narnia and Audiovision.
As the lead singer for some of these acts, Christian‘s relationship with the record companies and media in Japan has become close. Several tours in Japan have opened up doors for his musical career.
In 2008 Liljegren joined forces with Tommy Johansson, a 20-year-old super-talented vocalist and guitar hero. Both shared a big passion for melodic neoclassical metal and Golden Resurrection was born.
Golden Resurrection‘s debut album, Glory To My King, was released in Japan in October 2010 via King Records.
